Backpackers Pajama Party 2022: Backpacking The Wonderland Trail in 10 Days, with Kathleen Neves

We're back!! Grab your most comfy zoom pants and slippers, a favorite beverage and some popcorn, and join your fellow backpackers in this first virtual tour in our 2022 Pajama Party series, featuring distance backpacker and twice-PCT-thru-hiker Kathleen Neves on one of our most iconic local backpacking routes - the Wonderland Trail around Mt Rainier! The event is free and open to the public but you must get a ticket at the link below and then we will email you the zoom link to join.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to hike the 93-mile loop around the base of Mount Rainier along The Wonderland Trail? Join Kathleen Neves, fellow Mountaineer member and avid PNW hiker and backpacker for a virtual presentation where she’ll share details and photos from her recent 10-day backpacking trip along the Wonderland Trail this summer. 

During the presentation, Kathleen will go over how she planned her bucket list hike and put together her dream itinerary by sharing detailed trip logistics including getting permits, determining which direction to go and where to start from, getting to the trailhead and figuring out a food resupply strategy. She’ll also share her favorite resources she used to help plan the trip, along with some of her most favorite photos and memories of what trail life was like on the Wonderland for 10 days.

Beginning two days before the event we will email the instructions and link to join via zoom.  You must get a ticket on eventbrite at the link below to receive the zoom details to log in.

You can get a ticket for free, but if you have appreciated all of our efforts to keep your outdoor dreams alive during the Covid-19 pandemic and on into the future, we'd love it if you'd offer even a small gift toward our hiking and backpacking programs during this time of extreme financial difficulty!    Get your ticket at the link below, and if you're willing to contribute you can purchase a $10 or $20 ticket or choose the free option. We look forward to seeing you there!
